Jimmy Kleager

Lead Trainer / Business Owner

Jimmy, Lead Trainer, is a retired Lieutenant Colonel, US Army with a decorated career as an Infantryman including three deployments to the Middle East, two to Afghanistan and one to the Iraq.  His 20 years serving in the United States Army honed his leadership skills and passion to build men to their full potential.  He is a firm believer that each man has a God given purpose ready to be unbridled, to be the King of their life…men who live fully; empty the tank every day, with a reckless and unabashed love for all they do and want to accomplish.  Jimmy is acutely aware of the hard work and sacrifices required and stands resolute in helping men grow. 

William Branum

Lead Trainer / Business Owner

A former US Navy SEAL with 26 years of service, William Branum is the COO and a lead trainer at Man-Made. William focuses on helping other men grow while growing even more himself. His goal is that every man can find their purpose and mission with the right team: a team of men they can trust to be vulnerable with when necessary, and push them past limits to pursue excellence.

Doing life with the right team has always been William’s MO. He joined the Navy immediately after graduating high school. Post graduation from SEAL Training (BUD/S Class 208), he served on multiple SEAL Teams, taught SEAL Sniper School, and deployed around the globe. When William “retired” from the SEAL Teams, he felt like he had lost his purpose, mission, and team. 

“Now that I have found my new purpose, mission and team, I am excited to help other men find the most elite version of themselves.” 


Impact Stories


Back on Track

Prior to the event, I lacked clarity, vision, and self-accountability, and the ability to forgive myself for where I was in my life.  I was at a point where I lacked self-confidence and had decision paralysis. 


The Awakening was the event that allowed me to get back on track and game plan and how to execute, and to change the trajectory of my life.  


I know where I want to be and how I’m going to get there. 



Show Up

I was skeptical that going to The Awakening would have a positive effect on me and my life.  After reflecting on The Awakening,  I found a new meaning of the word “brother”.  We got past the superficial crap and grew together.  

I have gained the clarity, and know, that I need to show up for myself and that I was an obstacle on my own path.  I believe that I will thrive in my passion to help others as I now believe in myself and my path more.  

Hard is a necessity of good.  You must fight for good. Bring it and show up.
